US suspends all non-immigrant visa services in Turkey


“Recent events have forced the United States Government to reassess the commitment of the Government of Turkey to the security of US Mission facilities and personnel.”
This is a welcome initial recognition of the fact that Turkey is dismantling Kemalism, and is rapidly re-Islamizing. Only the terminally naive and blinkered, and those who know nothing about the jihad ideology, still hold to the idea that it is an ally of the U.S. in any meaningful sense.
“US suspends all non-immigrant visa services in Turkey,” Hürriyet Daily News, October 8, 2017:
The U.S. Embassy in Ankara on Oct. 8 announced that it had suspended all non-immigrant visa services at its diplomatic facilities in Turkey.
“Recent events have forced the United States Government to reassess the commitment of the Government of Turkey to the security of US Mission facilities and personnel. In order to minimize the number of visitors to our Embassy and Consulates while this assessment proceeds, effective immediately we have suspended all non-immigrant visa services at all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey,” the Embassy said in a statement issued on its Twitter account….
Non-immigrant visas are issued to all those travelling to the U.S. for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study. Visa services are only those seeking to live in the US permanently.
